Currently, with a given device, I can mount it in the rack either in the front or in the back of a rack- but this turns the given device around. I'd like to be able to mount a given device in the back of the rack, but facing front- or in the front of a rack, but facing backwards.
The current workaround is having to create a secondary hardware model for said device and append the name with "Reverse"- and of course flip with front and rear graphics for said hardware platform. However, this basically fouls up any inventory or reporting, since now I can't see all models of a given hardware platform by filtering (due to having to use the workaround of two separate Hardware models).
The easiest way to do this would be a new field- perhaps something along the lines of "Facing direction" that would be binary- standard or reverse.
